This 360 shows the the visitor centre and a busy canal junction at at Tunnel End in Marsden. Look closely and you can see a train passing, heading into the rail tunnel running alongside the canal tunnel.

Standedge Tunnel is the longest, highest and deepest canal in Britain. The tunnel takes the canal under the high Pennine spine of Northern England between Marsden in the Colne Valley and Diggle in Saddleworth.

Before the canal tunnel near Huddersfield was complete all boats transferred their cargo to packhorses. The first boat passed through on December 10th 1810, after restoration the tunnel re-opened in 2001.

Getting there...

Waters Road, Marsden, Huddersfield, HD7 6NG. Telephone 01484 844298

The Lowdown...

Unfortunately the canal the tunnel is built over links across the Pennines to Ashton Canal in Greater Manchester!
